Fruitmarket Gallery

Located behind Waverley train station, this world-class gallery showcases work by many of the leading names in contemporary art. An all-glass frontage allows passing pedestrians to observe the lower level of the gallery beyond the bookshop and café, and brings natural light to the top floor. The gallery's output includes exhibitions, commissions, interpretation, education and publishing in both print and electronic forms. Notable exhibitions include works by Lucy Skaer and Fred Tomaselli, and a retrospective of the Turner Prize-winning Glasgow artist Martin Creed.
